Letters to the Editor

Time to face the music

Day after day the media is bombarding us with negativity.

Every year it’s the same thing, people continue to be irresponsible. They throw cigarette butts out their car windows and start forest fires. They are too lazy to keep their garbage contained so bears keep coming and they get shot. Then the price of gas goes up two cents a litre — what a travesty — yet drivers can afford to get in a line up with the car running to get a morning coffee.

Pay a toll on a super-bridge — not us — we’ll drive miles out of our way to save a few dollars. All those that complain about the HST, how it’s gouging into their spending money. Still it does not stop those that can drink until 4 a.m. or pay hundreds of dollars for hockey or most sporting events.

How about growing up people? Be responsible for our actions. If we want better roads, highways, safer streets, we the public have to pay. Free went out of style a long time ago.

Eileen Nattrass,

Central Saanich
